Opinion of the Supreme Court in United States v. the Amistad, 3/9/1841

Senior Justice Joseph Story wrote and read the decision of the Court. The Supreme Court ruled that the Africans onboard the Amistad were free individuals. Kidnapped and transported illegally, they had never been slaves. The decision affirmed that “…it was the ultimate right of all human beings in extreme cases to resist oppression and to apply force against ruinous injustice.” The Court ordered the immediate release of the Amistad Africans.
